TransAtlantic Petroleum Announces Signed Term Sheet For Potential Acquisition In Poland

HAMILTON, Bermuda, March 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TransAtlantic Petroleum Ltd. (TSX:TNP) (NYSE-MKT:TAT) (the "Company" or "TransAtlantic") today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, TransAtlantic Worldwide, Ltd. ("TransAtlantic Worldwide"), has signed a non-binding term sheet with San Leon Energy plc ("San Leon"), a publicly traded oil and gas company based in Dublin, Ireland and Hutton Energy plc ("Hutton"), a private oil and gas company based in London, England.

The term sheet provides that TransAtlantic Worldwide would fund $5.0 million of past expenses in nine concession blocks in the Republic of Poland. In exchange, TransAtlantic Worldwide would receive a 50% interest in the nine Polish concessions, which contain approximately 1.9 million gross acres. The $5.0 million payment for past expenses would be repaid to TransAtlantic Worldwide by San Leon and Hutton from 50% of their initial production of their net interests. TransAtlantic Worldwide would operate the nine concessions, associated corporate entities and banking facilities, and would fund 100% of the cost to drill and complete two wells and re-enter and stimulate four wells. Upon realizing accumulated sales of 150,000 BOE, net to its 50% interest, TransAtlantic Worldwide would pay its partners a $5.0 million success fee.

The transaction is subject to the completion of satisfactory due diligence, definitive agreements and corporate, government, and regulatory approvals. A more detailed discussion of the proposed transaction is available on TransAtlantic's website at

TransAtlantic's Chairman and CEO Malone Mitchell 3 rd commented, "We see an exciting opportunity to target conventional oil and gas in the southern Permian Basin of Poland, which is a prolific producing basin throughout much of northern Europe. Poland has excellent fiscal terms and prices. We believe that our initial $10.0 – 15.0 million investment in two wells and four recompletions will be recompensed by resulting reserves."
